Does anyone use a sheepherding whistle?

I just got one, and it's pretty comical how I can't seem to use it properly, lol. I watched a few youtube tutorials on mouth placement, but I can only make a squeak so far. What's the learning curve like on these things? I know practice makes perfect, but I didn't know I'd have this much of a struggle with a whistle!

Arlene/Archer mentions using one in this thread,
Some concerns I have about starting ecollar training

She may have some insight on getting started, her input starts around page three I think.

Thanks Nigel She's sure doing great with a whistle, from what she's describing in that thread. I wonder if it's a regular whistle (which I have no problems operating) or this specific sheepherding whistle - which is baffling me, lol.
